Split Pea Soup with Leftover Ham Bone
You want to soften all your veggies with some melted butter until they are fragrant and perfect for eating in your soup.
Whether you use that great big savory ham bone or just chop up some leftover ham into diced pieces, now's the time to add it to your Dutch oven.
Toss in the bay leaf and split peas. You want to bring the whole pot to a boil, then simmer it for an hour with the cover on.
Take out the bone, discard the bay leaf and you can begin serving up bowls for dinner. Croutons make a great topping!
Easy garlic bread makes a good side to dip into your soup. It comes together quickly too!
